8:40 am
♪ two-time academy award nominee jessica chastain is one of the most sought after actresses in hollywood. her newest film is called "crimson peak." she plays lady lucille sharp who isn't happy when his brother moves his new bride into the family estate. >> i want this house to contain nothing but friendship, love and warmth. >> warmth would be an excellent start. thomas, your bride. >> forgive. let's go upstairs. >> lucille, when it's convenient would you mind giving me a copy of the house keys, please? >> you don't need one. >> i'm sorry? >> there are parts of the house that are unsafe. it will take you time to familiarize yourself.
8:41 am
should you still need them i'll have copies made. >> she seems friendly. >> chilly. >> a little chilly. nice to see you. this movie will freak people out. >> i hope so. >> you like doing this? >> it's fun. this genre is a great place for female roles. it's great. >> you told "time" magazine this will change the way we view women in movies. >> i mean, that's a broad statement. i think i was talking about the genre of the gothic romance. the lead character played by mia wasikowska is allowed to be a sexual creature and not be punished for that. >> is it true that the director wanted you for the other role and you wanted to be the evil character? >> he sent it to me thinking i would respond to edith. that's the lead character. so of course, what actress wouldn't? i wanted the darker one. >> were you the little girl who loved these movies or did they get to you and give you nightmares? >> i loved it.
8:42 am
when i was in high school, i had gothic friends and, oh, my god, we loved "interview with a vampire" with tom cruise and brad pitt and the costumes. it was fun. >> do you believe in ghosts? >> yeah. >> like in the floating figure ghosts or just kind of misplaced spirits? >> it's more fun to believe in ghosts than not to. yes, i believe in ghosts. sometimes the lights turn off and on if i'm in london or something. i always say, hey, okay, great. you're here. i recognize you. i'm super tired. please let me sleep. >> you have had experiences that you relate to ghosts? >> yeah. who knows? it could be an electrical -- >> a short circuit. >> it's more fun to think someone's trying to communicate. >> i had a house where a chair would move -- a rocking chair. >> how long did you stay there? >> long time. a few years. i was reading about you last night as we often do when someone like you is coming. first of all, you have a reputation. do you know what it is? >> sounds terrible. >> i mean it in a good way.
8:43 am
do you know what it is? >> what? >> you don't just take a role. you dive into roles. >> yeah . >> how do you plead? >> absolutely true. to the sadness of my family and friend s. >> is it just the way you learn? >> you know, when you are playing a character you have to defend them and understand them. it's fun playing a character like celia foote from "the help" because you're love and light. playing lucille you have to defend dark actions. that can get tough. >> the other thing i read and i don't know if this is a statement that gets taken out of context but you have a hidden desire to play the villain in a bond movie. >> yeah. it started out at the beginning in 2011 with people saying wouldn't you like to be a bond girl? wouldn't that be fun? yeah, that would be fun but i would rather play a villain. then you are someone to contend with. and how much fun would it be to kick bond's ass once in a while? >> fun, i guess. he's not happy playing bond, mr.
